Join our Facebook group

If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Manchester, you can join our Facebook group for people who have been to, or are wanting to come to, a meet up. It’s a safe space only for those who have been bereaved, and you’ll be able to find out all the latest information about the meet ups. Request to join by clicking here.



Fran is a 29 year old TV Production Coordinator who’s lived in Manchester for 3 years. She is a trained Mental Health first aider & also a workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing champion- so safe to say she enjoys looking after people! She’s a music geek who loves travelling, being outdoors, meeting new people & is a bit obsessed with yoga. Having lost her Dad last year she has found talking to other “griefsters” and listening to people’s stories very comforting, so she’s looking forward to meeting everyone!


Phil is 28 and works in a coffee shop in Manchester City Centre. He enjoys going to gigs and festivals, comedy, watching and occasionally playing football, travelling and photography. Having lost his mum 7 years ago, he struggled to talk about his feelings to other people, so is looking forward to meeting people in the same situation, make new friends and to help and learn from each other.


Heather is a Psychology graduate who now works with children. She is really passionate about ending the stigma around grief and making the journey less dark and lonely. She loves music, films and writing, and she aspires to be a counsellor one day. Heather (or any of the Hosts!) is more than happy to privately talk to or meet anyone who may need it before the meet ups if it helps them feel less anxious about attending. She can’t wait to meet you!

Email manchester@letstalkaboutloss.org if you want to chat to the Hosts before coming to a meet up.
